Annual Fire Alarm and Sprinkler Inspection

 

Please be advised that authorized personnel from the Fire Alarm System maintenance service provider will be on site to perform the annual fire alarm and sprinkler inspection as part of the routine planned preventive maintenance. During this time, the buildings’ audible alarm and flashing strobes will be activated for several minutes. This will be repeated during the testing period multiple times. Please disregard any audible alarms or flashing strobes as this is required to test the buildings life safety system appropriately. These inspections are required by the local fire marshall, fire codes, and national standards.

Note: If the audible alarm and flashing strobes are recurrently operating for more than 5 minutes during the test period then, this is a genuine evacuation indication and all occupants must follow the evacuation procedures immediately.

Inspection Areas: Montecito Clubhouse, Fitness Center, HOA Office, Shadow Golf Club, Santa Rosa Clubhouse

Date of Inspection: April 22 through April 26

Time of Inspection: 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM

We apologize for the inconvenience caused during the time of testing and appreciate your cooperation.

For more information, please contact the Facilities Maintenance Department at 760-345-4349 ext. 2401.

HOA Board Election 2019 Results

To all who were not in attendance at the Annual Meeting today here are the results:

  • Kim Fuller was elected to the Board with 1490 votes.
  • Linda Aasen was elected to the Board with 1572 votes.

Measure 1 - respecting changing the quorum and voting requirements of our governing documents received a total of 1678 votes; with 1487 YES votes (88.6%), and 191 NO votes (11.4%). Despite the overwhelming majority of votes in favor, the Measure did not pass because our present Governing documents require a total of 1760 “YES” votes to amend the By-laws (which is 51% of the voting power of the HOA).

Measure 2 and Measure 3 did not involve amending our governing documents, so only a quorum of 517 votes with passage by a majority was required. Thus;

  • Measure 2 approving the Minutes of Last Year’s Annual Meeting passed with 1620 YES votes to 70 NO votes.
  • Measure 3 approving allowing the Board to use the most favorable Federal tax regulations (Revenue Ruling 70-604) which is submitted to the membership every year, also passed with 1593 yes votes to 78 no votes.

Directly after the tallies were announced, the Board adjourned to Executive Session as provided for in our Governing Documents to determine the officers for the next year April 2019-2020. The results of that meeting were announced to those in attendance:

  • Kim Fuller - President
  • Fera Mostow - Vice-President
  • Bruce Marley - Treasurer
  • Linda Aasen - Secretary
  • Robert Israel - Member at Large

To all of you who voted your preferences, thank you. We welcome Linda Aasen to the Board and congratulate Kim Fuller on his re-election.
